Recently we received an email from a subscriber that told us that they didn't enjoy our personal stories and that the women on the publication "go on and on about their personal lives... yadda yadda yadda."
Pretending that the comment doesn't sting is in fact, a BOLD FACED LIE. It sure does! That's MY life they just called YADDA! My story about my hubby.

Duttine - Cavataio Fund FEB 25 Brentwood Park
Julie Andrulonis, Brentwood native was a personal friend of mine from college. I loved her from the minute we met on our Freshman Dorm Floor.
Julie is the 3rd on the right looking at the picture.
Julie and I caught up several years ago and then I saw her post on Facebook crying out in disbelief for prayers for her 2 year old son Jaden. I rallied with her to pray for her son Jaden's life when it was threatened by metastatic neuroblastoma. She never left his side.

I had the chance to meet up and chat with McDonald's experts this week to talk about the New Happy Meals and McDonald's commitment to offer improved nutrition choices.
Let me start off by saying I am thrilled at this new change! Anyone who knows me would tell you I am all about healthy eating. That said, we all want an occasional treat - Hello Shamrock Shake! We don't eat out a ton, but it is nice to have healthy choices along with that "treat." If you let ...

“How do I stack coupons?”
Stacking, a word used often in the Coupon Community.
“How do I stack coupons?”
I am asked that question more than anything else. Stacking coupons at your favorite stores can really add up to more savings for your family. But you have to know the policies of your store.
Stacking coupons means you can use a Store Coupon AND a Manufacturer Coupon on one item. The coupons must match up for the same item. For example, you can use a Target Printable for $1 off toothpaste AND a manufacturer coupon ...
It’s an age old question; “What do you do?” I’m a woman so my list of duties is numerous. I bear lots of different titles; Wife, Mother, Chef, Maid, Friend, Lover, Teacher and Business Owner. I love every one of my titles but it certainly hasn’t always been easy!
I love being a Wife and Lover! I waited a long time for my mate. In fact I was almost the last of my friends to get married. I was picky! But it’s been ...
THE LIVING WELL PLAN & Two Free Audio's For You!
In 1998, HealthnBeauty.com went live and featured health and beauty product reviews, an active forum, ezines, and The Living Well Plan, one of the first online diet support networks for women (men liked it too).
The Living Well Plan was a whole food eating approach that I used to lose weight after I gained 55 pounds during my second pregnancy. The Plan included hundreds of recipes, charts, and support from myself and other members.
Members lost weight, felt great, and always had a place to go to when they ...
Let's start them off right with tips from the experts!
Early Dental Care
We commonly get oral health questions regarding infants and toddlers. Below is a list of common questions and answers.
When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check-up?
"First visit by first birthday" sums it up. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child should visit a pediatric dentist six months after the first tooth erupts. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child's smile now and in the future. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all infants ...
I keep seeing these fabulous Duct Tape roses and have always wanted to know how to make them! This is a wonderful tutorial to show us exactly how it's done!! In this tutorial they show the "stem" as a straw but I've also seen the stem as an ink pen and this becomes an easy way to to dress up an ordinary ink pen!
This is also a very economical craft. You can find colored duct tape at almost any retail store for under $5/large roll and ...

A review from a parents perspective
We had a blast at the Pittsburgh Auto Show tonight. This used to be an annual date for my husband and I. We always looked forward to going. I remember seeing parents pushing their babies in strollers or kids "driving" the cars and thinking I can't wait to have kids and do this. For one reason or another we had not gone since we've had kids. Tonight was the night. We are now those parents! We had plans to meet up with our friends and their kids.
February 23 – 26

Join KidCrates to Help Fight Bored Kid Syndrome
An epidemic is striking families by surprise and plaguing entire households with its relentless and undiscriminating arrival. Bored Kid Syndrome, or BKS, is an ever-growing challenge common among children aged 2-18 and affects nine out of every ten kids.
It's a problem that's rampantly sweeping the country with its ferocity, and many parents don't know what to do after diagnosis. Luckily, KidCrates has devised some sure-fire ways to help you battle against this growing epidemic and ensure that it ...
